The new Seagate ST2000DM001 is high capacity 2TB disk with 500GB on each side of 2 plates.
Operating at 7200rpm, the ST2000DM001 manages to reach 120MB/s of bandwidth. Seagate decided that the performance loss of moving to 5900RPM wasn’t justified by the power savings. It believed that by introducing a more power efficient 7200RPM drive it could deliver the best of both worlds,
- Ideal for everyday desktop and computing storage
- 1TB per platter
- 2TB capacity stores 360 HD video, or 600,000 photos, or 750,000 songs
- 64MB DDR2-800 RAM
- 2 year warranty
The Seagate ST2000DM001 has a reputation for being durable with consumer machines. The disk is basic and it delivers excellent performance for general purpose uses.
We continue to use our ST2000DM001-1CH164, and it has not been a problem after over 20,500 power on hours. Some disks we have are over 30,000 power on hours and they continue to function.
